Five years, 100 free albums, nearly 1000 free tracks. That's WM Recordings in a nutshell for you. We celebrate our fifth birthday with the release - yes, our 100th! - of this special compilation of cover versions, remixes, and tracks about free, legal music. We hope you'll celebrate with us.
WM Recordings is an independent record label, operating from Heerlen, the Netherlands. WM Recordings released its first free album on november 7th, 2004. Exactly five years later it’s time for our 100th release.
We bring you an eclectic mix of styles, from Pop to Free Jazz, from Afrobeat to Progressive Rock. Our artists come from all corners of the world.
Our free releases can be downloaded directly from our site, or from various other sources, including Last.fm, LegalTorrents, the Free Music Archive and Mininova.
What others say:
"Where most netlabels dare to only feature a small handful of genres, WM Recordings is astronomically diverse in it's musical styles and directions. Having enjoyed more music than I can mention, I wonderfully wish them another 5 years to make 200 releases of solid sounds." - Otis Fodder, www.otisfodder.com
"Five years ago I wrote, "Super excited and grateful that WM Recordings has sprouted. Here's to it blossoming in the years to come."
Blossom it has. Now we celebrate 100 releases and five years of unusual, wonderful free music, and a fantastic catalog for sale. Countless ears around the world have enjoyed their music. WM Recordings has been a positive place on the web for five years, and we are all so fortunate for it!
Congratulations to Marco and all of the WM Recordings artists on five years of blossoming. Happy Birthday, WM Recordings." - Katyana, www.oddiooverplay.com
"In the ever expanding world of netlabels, there's an elite few who I've found to be a consistent source of both intriguing and quality music. In my constant quest for netaudio gems, WM Recordings delivers them again and again. Congrats on your first 5 years and 100 releases! I look forward to the next!" - Mike Gregoire, Founder/Curator blocSonic.com
"It is incredible that we've reached release number 100 now. Another album made possible by "real people"! To quote a dear friend of mine: for over the top produced albums go to the nearest shopping mall, for music by people like you and me, go to WM Recordings! WM Recordings also means: live your own dreams and not those of others." - Jan Turkenburg, www.splogman.com
